Ok so i dont have any recent pictures of my problem. but my girl is in soil about 6weeks from seed under a 250w hps in flower. she was in a 2L bottle and only the top set of fan leaves are deforming. perfect green color but they are wrinkled but not dry at all. i transplanted her to a 2gal pot thinking her roots needed some air. this picture is about from a week ago she also is very short
Looks stressed

Ive been understanding that the lines across the screens is caused by magnetic ballasts, but with a digital/electronic ballast this prob has been corrected or is not an issue. correct or no?
I don't know about with hps/mh. But, I've noticed my camera doesn't like my LED light when it's over 60% power.

Here's 1 of my girl's under a 1150 watts Gavita. As this is my first grow with them I always used 600 hps up till now. I don't think the buds are any better on top but underneath is were you really see the different. Hoping for 3 lbs off it DSC01641.JPG

My phone's camera shows the tell tail lines under a magnetic ballast, while my normal camera doesn't.

Actually if you run hps with led you can take pics without color distortionIMG_20180519_140533.jpg IMG_20180519_140533.jpg

If you must take a pic on your phone with the light on, turn white balance all the way down will be a bit darker but will eliminate the flickering/white lines

I use a 20mp Nikon CoolPix camera to take my pot shots. It has a manual white balance that once calibrated gives me great shots that look like they were taken in sunlight. Never any banding or stripes and I use magnetic ballasts.

To set it up I lay a sheet of computer paper on top of the canopy to aim the camera at then hit Measure in the white balance menu and it sets itself to make what it's aimed at white.

I take the pics at the camera's highest resolution and they are almost 4.4Mb and 13 x 17" before I resize on my computer to 3 x 4" at 300dpi and the file size is reduced to around 0.334Mb or 334Kb. Still nice clear shots.

That pic was taken just after bending 4' freestanding plants into that 4x4' screen. Badly neglected due to my inattention for months while going thru a rough patch with chronic depression. Still rough but coping. Barely.

A day short of 6 weeks 12/12 and still looking rough but I should get a decent yield. Three strains in there. 2 Critical Mass, 2 AK47 and a couple hi-CBD plants that are a cross of Cannatonic and Otto#1.

I've been meaning to start new seeds of different strains but haven't got around to that either tho should have started a couple months ago. Have more hi-CBD ones Two the same as what's there and 10 of that cross that was crossed with Herijuana. Also some crosses of DJ Shorts BlueBerry with Island Sweet Skunk that a friend sent me. About 200 each from 5 ISS females that were pollinated with pollen from 3 BB males. Going to try getting a few clones off one CBD plant in there but may just buy some better yielding CBD seeds.

For those that think stress is what causes plants to go hermie explain to me why these aren't hermed yet as they have known nothing but stress for their whole over-vegged lives. Left to dry right up on many occasions then revived, underfed, overfed, sprayed numerous times for mites etc. Good thing there are no criminal charges for plant abuse or I'd be serving life! :D

Hang in there buddy! I'm sure the plants forgive ya.
Thanks. It's been years since I've had much enthusiasm for growing or life in general. All started with a near fatal hammer attack 40 years ago. That's about the same time I grew my first buds. Tried all the pharma meds for years but none were as much help as they were hindrance so haven't tried any for over a decade. A little puff of a good sativa lifts my mood better than any pill. Saw a therapist for almost two years a few years ago and tho he was a good guy he seemed to think my depression was father issues where I'm pretty sure it's a PTSD thing. I have nothing but fond memories of my dad and my mom is still alive and turning 92 in Aug. She and my sisters are down in Kelowna, BC and that's where I hope to be by my next b-day in Oct when I turn 65. I hate living up here in northern Alberta and I think that's why my depression has got so bad the last few years. Almost moved to Campbell River, BC and wish I had so bad. If I can sell this place the wife can have half and I'm gonzo!

I should just plant a shitload of seeds and stock up on pot as I likely won't be growing for a while if I move. A 5lb harvest would last for a long time and I have enough lights and seeds to pull it off.

So indecisive and have many projects on the back-burner.
